ACE Spooling Winches and Reels Enlarge image
Found under

We manufacture a range of standard and bespoke spooling winches, designed to facilitate the installation or removal of wire, rope or umbilicals from winches to storage reels under constant back tension.

Our spooling winches are designed to rotate reels of wire, rope or umbilical. Removable shafts act as an axle and can be supplied in various diameters to support the reel through a hole in the centre. Maximum reel weight capacities of 50te to 400te.

The winches can be diesel, electrically or pneumatically driven. Smaller units are supplemented with external HPUs while units with capacities of 50te or higher have integrated power systems.

Original manufacturer’s reels are not designed to take a lot of back tension, likewise spooling winches have their limitations as well.  Our spooling winch and traction winch combination provides the solution.

The original manufacturer’s reel with the product will be installed onto our spooling winch.  The traction winch is then used to generate the high back tension required to spool the product onto the client’s equipment.

Our traction winch works on friction drive mechanism.  We can generate a spooling back tension as high as 90te. To generate this back tension, you only need to apply 8te of a tension on the manufacturer’s spooling drum.
